Movie Review: “The Intruder” & “Booksmart”

I reviewed the thriller, “The Intruder” and the coming-of-age story, “Booksmart”. One is my favorite film of the year so far, while the other is not. Find out which one by watching this review.


Movie Review: “Long Shot”

Can you tell me the last time you saw a really good RomCom? I have to go back to “When Harry Met Sally” and that’s a long way. If it feels like that for you too, maaaaybe I can help ya out. Long Shot is a new film starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen and I think you should probably watch this review.

“Long Shot” opens in theaters May 3.
